Film Fit


I teach in a way that things make sense quickly. As an actor and filmmaker myself, I understand how to articulate a movement or a thought in a manner that others can quickly grab onto. Take a back and forth conversation in an acting scene, for example. Fighting is the same as acting (minus the bumps and bruises). It is a dance between two people in its purest form. In acting, your scene partner says their line, you listen, and then reply accordingly. Well, think of fighting in the same manner. Your opponent throws a technique, and you listen by staying in the moment and paying attention, then you reply with a technique of your own based on the technique that was just thrown at you. In acting, if you are not in the moment, truly listening to your scene partner, you will miss something vital that you need to formulate the appropriate emotion and reply. In fighting, if you are IN YOUR HEAD and not IN THE MOMENT, truly paying attention to the specific attack of your opponent, you will miss something vital, resulting in you getting knocked out. It’s all the same.”

I had a great few months of very valuable training with MMA Legend John Lewis. He’s got great hands and if you listen to his instruction, you can add technique to your game by someone who has been there. His fight game speaks for itself; just ask around from current and past world champions whom he has worked with. The man was ahead of his time, a real living legend and world-class fighter with an unbelievable jab. He really helped me prepare for a recent fight and I was very lucky to have had such expert instruction… and I won. Thanks champ.”
